Utz Ridge Cut Bacon Cheddar Potato Chips

Taste test: We've reviewed quite a few rippled potato chips over the years, with considerable diversity of dimensions and shapes for the ripples, but this time we got something entirely new in that regard. On my first glance into the bag, I noticed that the ripples were quite wide, which alone would have set these chips apart. But the shapes of the ripples also were unusual, as the peak and trough of each wave was nearly flat, a look similar to some kinds of corrugated metal. So while most rippled chips have shapes that are close to sine waves or triangular waves, these ones were nearly like square waves.

The chips had a golden yellow color, with occasional areas of browning, a sparse application of green seasoning bits and occasional areas of skin on the edges. We crunched in to find a light, crisp crunch but not much in the way of cheddar or bacon to taste — the flavor was far closer to sour cream and onion than that. It was mild as sour cream and onion chips go. I did occasionally notice a hint of smokiness, but otherwise, they missed the mark for both cheddar and bacon.

Smell test: Something savory and mild, but couldn't notice any bacon or cheddar.

From the package: “With ridges over 2X wider than our Ripple Potato Chips, Utz® Ridge Cut Potato Chips pack even more crunch and flavor in every bite! Prepare your taste buds for an incredible rush, guaranteed to have you craving more.”
